WSCU is the right school for me because I felt right at home when I came to visit. Olathe is not far from Gunnison, so I did not have to go far away from home. I am extremely family-oriented, and here at WSCU there are a lot of clubs and organizations that give that sense of family.
At WSCU I am involved in the Multicultural Center. I have been part of the Amigos club all my four years here and have served officer positions for three years. This year I am the president of the Amigos club. Amigos does take up a lot of my time, however through the club I have the opportunity to support many of the other clubs on campus. I have also been the women’s basketball manager and I am again this year.
My favorite thing to do in Gunnison is to go to Bingo with my roommate Kjirsten Sauer and to go to the Gunnisack and eat a delicious Gunny cookie.
My favorite memory of life at WSCU is hard to narrow down to one single memory, but I would have to say all the events the Amigos club put on are my favorite memories. I was able to help out with all of these and bring cultural awareness to campus.
One thing I've learned about myself since coming to WSCU is that I have become a very strong leader and more opinionated. I have confidence in myself which helps me to exert my leadership in a positive way.
My favorite professor is Suzy Coykendall. She is such a great professor and a great person. She really cares about her students succeeding and she has helped me greatly throughout my college career.
After graduation I plan to hopefully find a job in Olathe or Montrose area as a school counselor or just a therapist. I want to gain some job experience before I go on to get my Master’s degree. I am also getting married in July of 2013!!
